More exposed to the winds of the Aegean and less to those that swept away the popular cultures, Skyros is like an ark. Indeed, beside the embroidery, the wood carving, the ceramics, the mettalurgy, the aesthetics and functionality of the Skyrian home, the island has preserved a rare race of small-sized horse which roam on the quiet mountain sides. The land of Skyros is divided in two parts: the rough and uninhabited south, named Vouno and the mild and green north, the Meroi. There are hikes on both parts: those of the Meroi run through forested or cultivated land, lead to chapels or nice beaches, while those of Vouno, have a mountain "ambiance" and nice views. Six signposted hiking routes are recorded on the map.
Anavasi maps are all available in digital format (geo-referenced images), combining new technologies with high-quality cartography.
For use on smartphones (with Android Operating system) we recommend Anavasi mapp app. Within the application one purchases each map (corresponding to the printed one) separately. After the map is purchased and downloaded, the application works offline.
The map is identical to the printed one and shows your location in the center of the screen. We can also choose one of the proposed routes to follow.
For iPhone/iPad users we recommend purchasing our maps through the Avenza Maps application.
The digital maps available from our online store are geo-referenced map images in 3 different formats. All three are included in the compressed zip file.
1. Map image georeferenced in GGRS87, the Greek Geodetic Reference System (filename *87.tif), which can be used in GIS programs or other cartographic data management programs.
2. Map image georeferenced in WGS84, the global geodetic reference system (filename *84.tif), which can be used in GIS programs or cartographic data management programs.
3. Map image in Kmz format, which can be loaded on most new Garmin GPS models. Please check out the Garmin site to see if your GPS model supports "Custom Maps".
We recommend to use the digital map always in combination with the paper map that gives us a complete overview of the area and is useful when planning our journey.
It is forbidden to copy and distribute the digital files. They can only be printed for non-commercial use.
